QUEER ART/ Sandra Österberg at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm! Vernissage 7/12 18-21 hs!
Meet Sandra Österberg and see her art! Vernissage 7/12 at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm at 18-21 hs.
A selection of art from two exhibitions exposed during 2018, BEAUTIFUL SURFACE and BAD IMITATOR.
Sandra Österbergs works fluctuates between large and small perspectives where they end up in the borderland between abstraction and figuration. The visual narratives explore and problematize the themes about corporeality and not too seldom, it includes the female body or a queer/-norm-breaking body/bodies. In the development of the artworks, confidential photos and photos from the mass media, pop culture and the internet are the starting point. Many of the paintings can be perceived as some kind of portraits, but they are not principally portraits based on the classical aspect. They manifests expressions of sexuality, intimacy, mystery, gender, obscurity, and representation where social conventions are questioned and highlighted.

QUEEN ART/ Bitte Andersson at StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm! At the end of the rainbow
Welcome to the reading from and by Bitte Andersson’s current series novel At the end of the rainbow! In addition, Bitte signs books, exhibition and mingel!
”When 76-year-old Marja’s apartment has to be redirected, she moves to the HBTQ senior housing Plejaderna. The overwhelming Millan welcomes with sherry and soon invites Marja to make friends somewhat against Marjas will.”
At the end of the rainbow is as much a romantic comedy as a series novel about sorrow, love, good neighbors, and daring to return to life after a depression. It is a specific depiction of queer closet life and the importance of finding our context. At the end of the rainbow is fiction, but also contains glimpses of HBTQ history inspired by interviews with elder HBTQ people.
Bitte Andersson is a cartoonist, film director and former bookstore owner. At the end of the rainbow is her debut novel. She has previously directed the lesbian action comedy musical Dyke Hard and started the feminist bookstore Hallongrottan in Hornstull.
